Adams Campus Challenge Course

The Adams Campus Outdoor Education Center is a challenge course with a series of activities consisting of real and imaginary obstacles. It is designed to promote leadership by trying new things and pushing people out of their comfort zones, reducing inhibitions and breaking down barriers, problem solving, building trust and communication through physical and emotional challenges.

The Adams Campus Outdoor Education Center is a low element challenge course located South of Lawrence, just Southeast of Clinton Lake. Programming is open to both KU students and the public.

Success is determined by the willingness to participate and grow, not by the completion of tasks.
